Although the Nordic Built Charter is based on a Nordic framework, its principles is by no means restricted for use exclusively in the Nordic countries. The Charter has now been translated to Chinese, and is available for any actors in the building sector who are operating in the Chinese region and interested in our future built environment. You can download the Chinese version of the Charter here.


The translation of the Charter is a result of Danish-Chinese cooperation on renewable energy that has been going on since 2009. Now the Danes want to use the principles in the Charter as part of the cooperation. 


- The thought is to use the Charter actively as inspiration and framework for a renovation project we are trying to launch in China this year, says Peter Toft of the Danish Energy Agency.


The Agency is a part of the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Building, and the project is a project on energy-efficient building renovation in China, in cooperation with the Chinese Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.


This may prove to be a good display of the universality and utility of the Charter's holistic approach to the built environment. You can read more about the Nordic Built Charter here.
